Mosquito devices and human rights: A rights-based approach to protecting young people
A human rights-based approach for the protection of young people moved a step closer last week in a meeting at the Scottish Parliament.
Chair of the Scottish Youth Parliament, Amy Lee Fraioli MSYP and Commissioner Bruce Adamson met with Christina McKelvie – MSP for Hamilton, Larkhall and Stonehouse – to discuss the ongoing protection of children and young people in Scotland.
Central to the discussions was the topic of the ‘mosquito device’ installed in Hamilton Central train station. The device has received widespread condemnation from the Youth Parliament, who argue the devices breach the human rights of young people.
In agreement, Christina McKelvie MSP supported the Youth Parliament’s campaign to ban the devices. She also advocated for a stronger working relationship between the parliaments.
